A great story that I just couldn’t pass up. Of course, we all remember the 34-32 upset of Appalachian State over the Michigan Wolverines (in Michigan, mind you) just last season. And if you somehow forgot, just check out the picture above, as it’s all you need to know.
But while that occured almost 12 months ago, it appears that some Michigan alums are still taking things to heart.
This week, [ASU Grad Kerry] Brown is among a slew of roster hopefuls who might as well be called hair because there is a good chance they will be cut.
But I figured that after beating Michigan, Brown must think that anything’s possible. I walked over and introduced myself, but when I extended my hand, I noticed his were both holding helmets.
“This one’s Jon Jansen’s,” Brown said, referring to the Redskins’ veteran tackle who is a–gulp–Michigan alum. “He came over to me and said, ‘Hey, rook. Carry my helmet. Where’s Appalachian State now?’”
Where’s Appalachian State? Try Boone, NC… just look for the trophies.
I’d be willing to bet that those 1-AA championships are nice to have and all, but that win over UM will ring forever. I mean, do fans set up web sites specifically for the banners? I think not. But the upset of the century? You got it.
